Marin Fair Paintings

This painting, "Quiet Carousel", won 1st Place at the Marin Fair Plein Air competition. Sonoma and Marin County's plein air painters tend to go for the colorist sensibilities (Henry Hensche and Sergei Bongart's followers such as Camille Przewodek call this area home) so I thought the judges might veer towards a more colorful exercise. I really never use a light-fuschia-teal-green scheme, but it was fun and I got a different painting than what I usually get in terms of mood. The overall color harmony is anchored down with Transparent Earth Orange, a color I love. It's like a warmer more transparent Burnt Umber. This painting took about 2.5 hours.

This one was sort of the warm-up to the other one. Much different in feel and color than the other painting, it's more literal and not as flashy. It relies a lot more simplie definite shapes to carry the composition, thanks to Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright:
